SARATOGA — On October 8, female students in 9th and 10th grade from six different high schools gathered at the 2022 Saratoga Builders Association’s Home Showcase to show off their building skills. The girls built 4’ x 8’ lean-to-sheds, which were then auctioned off with the proceeds donated to two charities and the Workforce Development Coalition. 

The construction trades present great opportunities today for all students, including those who may not have considered pursuing a construction-related career, like women. The building teams at the event were led by area females in the building industry with the support of local construction professionals. The participating schools included: Corinth, Greenwich, Mechanicville, Northville, Schuylerville and Stillwater. 

The 2022 Saratoga Showcase of Homes is continuing this weekend, October 15 and 16. Now celebrating its 26th year, this annual community event has contributed over $1.4 million dollars to local charities. Proceeds from the Saratoga Showcase of Homes benefit Rebuilding Together Saratoga County ( and Habitat for Humanity of Northern Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties ( For more details on the 2022 Saratoga Showcase of Homes event, please visit, or check them out on Facebook.
